Happy Valentine’s Day to my Single Running Friends

I know it’s a sappy sappy day and I am sure I am not allowed to say much because Juan and I seem like the most sugary people ever, but let me get out of that zone.
If you are single, today feels like hell. I know it. I haven’t celebrated Valentine’s Day for 36 years, I swear. It is stooopid and what’s the point? I’d go out with a girl-friend, wear red and pretend we were in love or I’d hide out and swear I’d never get into that stuff ever because it’s stoooopid. Well, a few years went by, I gave into it, and I am now having fun with it, but I gotta tell you: we all get how bullshit this is from this side to. Now, I am in LOVE and VDay can be fun if both people are into the BS, but can I just tell you the point of all of this?
I never thought I’d be this person. This, you know? (PS: my hubs says I am the most unromantic person in the universe…!).So, for all of you single friends who avoid this or scuff at it, can I tell you… this might be you in no time!!!!!!
I never wanted to get married, and 6 months after meeting him, I was married. Proposal and 2 weddings in a month, craziness. This stuff just happens. And it’s a whirlwind and it can’t be stopped or slowed down and most things you believe are 100% you might change all around. I never wanted to live with anyone: we were living together since day 1. All of it ridiculous, yes. VERY ridiculous. But, really, it could happen to anyone if it happened to me: the most stubborn, unromantic, single, and set in her ways woman on earth.
So, please, enjoy your time alone, your space and your bed all to yourself for now (do it for me) because in PR time all of it might be changed. Which is a great thing.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

My Dear V

My Dear VO2 max,

I am onto you. I am coming for you.

I know how this works. It’s a slow process to get you just where I need you to be. Right where things work perfectly and everything seems effortlessly and natural. Right when I feel like everything I do is perfect and I am flying. Flying through the Air. Like Electricity.

I know there’s all these protocols to get there, conventions, and rules. I know, I am aware, I am not ignoring them. And because I wasn’t working on it for almost 6 months, you got offended and left me here. I get it. I’d be upset too. I just really had no interest in any one else while I was injured, you know: cross-training is not for me!!

But I am here, and I want us to be in this together; we need to make it work. I’ll do whatever it takes. I’ll do my hill sprints. I might even say yes to speedwork; but you have to be there to catch me if I am going that route. Okay? Are you with me? I am ready to come back and put all my effort in there so I can make you peak. My body is completely ready and willing to bend to your will. You can’t say no.

Happy Valentine’s Day Everybody!
(a day late, but what’s new!??! Too crazy yesterday!)

My Dear V
